    nice plugin but i cant put in my custom bosses to it and the bettercreepereggs it just go's white egg that does not work can you fix that

    Compared to other crate plugins this is one of the average ones.Iv seen many crate plugins which -compared to this plugin- allow users to add Items WITH NBT-TAGS. It is very sad that this is not possible to add inside a game (ingame edit).[-1] Chances for certain rewards can't be set [-1].But still this is also a very useful plugin due to the fact that you don't even need a config file to modify the possible loot.

      The plugin isn't really getting updated for functionality at the moment, I don't have the time as earning money to actually live takes priority unfortunately.

    Well I really like everything, I just cant figure out how to add percentages without showing them in the crate.

    Great Plugin, my only concern is that I the holographic display doesn't go away after I destroy the crate? Any known fix? Please help me out so I can write you a Five Star review! Cheers man!

    Broken! Doesnt work at all! Chests glitch, command rewards dont work.. you can dupe the keys..... NOT WORTH THE TROUBLE! :(

    There are several ways how to duplicate the key. I reported one on GitHub but author closed my thread with no response.

    Be careful with this plugin.

      Please post the issue using the issue template. I'm unable to understand a problem when all you give a video link with no sound or context.
